Why Your Hair Isn't Growing!
You've made the commitment to go natural, you've bought all the products, watched a million youtube videos (literally a million) to help you on your natural haircare journey. It's been months even years but your hair still hasn't shown any significant growth and you are one shopping trip away from buying that relaxer. Not so fast! Here are some hair deadly sins you could be committing that is keeping your hair from achieving those inches you are looking for.
Heat Over Exposure
We put this one at the top of the list because this one is a biggie. If you are constantly putting heat to your head then you are stopping your hair growth process in a major way. Excessive blow-drying, flat ironing and pressing the hair can result in dry brittle hair, heat damage and breakage. Try using low manipulation styles that you can wear for an extensive amount of time without causing too much stress on the hair follicles. Using products like our Shea Moisture Cream and Mango Butter Pomade are perfect or adding daily moisture to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
Bad Hair Care Tools
This is one that is majorly overlooked, using poor hair tools like small toothed combs and incorrect brushes for your hairs texture can play a big role in your hairs condition. Fractured bobby pins and hair ties that have no soft outer layer can rip, snag and cause major damage to your hair. Try using items like our Flex Detangler Brush that has adjustable comb widths which allows give when you are brushing your hair.
Lack of moisture
If none of these tips seem to help there may be an underlying health issue that needs to be addressed. Make sure that these healthy hair habits are not done sporadically but consistent and you should see your hair begin to improve in as little as one month.
